Major National contractual projects involving SPINTEC


STOCHNET – An ANR project

STOCHNET stands for Hybrid Stochastic Tunnel Junction Circuits for Optimization and Inference. The motivation behind StochNet is to explore — through experimental demonstrations with hybrid CMOS stochastic tunnel junction circuits and simulations of theoretical architectures — the technological feasibility of recently explored brain inspired computing frameworks that point towards neural stochasticity as being fundamental to […]

NeuSPIN – An ANR project

NeuSPIN stands for Design of a reliable edge neuromorphic system based on spintronics for Green AI. Current computing architectures with separate processing and memory blocks are not ideal for energy-efficient learning and inference processing for AI on the edge concept. For AI edge applications, it is envisioned that classical von Neumann computing will be replaced […]

CRYMCO – An ANR project

The goal of project CRYMCO is to optimize MRAM cell concepts for operation in cryogenic temperature environments. The project will explore applications for storage in conventional and quantum information processing. In the first case, MRAM with low energy dissipation for cryogenic environments could result in power savings by operating at low temperature, when the cost/power […]

MARIN – An ANR project

MARIN stands for Magnon Reservoir computINg. It is a 42 months researcher project funded by the French ANR. MARIN aims at showing that spin waves can be used in the field of “wave-computing” where oscillatory signals are proposed to perform analog non-Boolean operations such as reservoir computing (see Figure). The MARIN project will investigate experimentally […]

UFO – An ANR project

UFO stands for UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics for Futur Nanotechnologies. UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics is an emerging field of research that combines the ideas and concepts of magneto-optics and opto-magnetism with spin transport phenomena, supplemented with the possibilities offered by photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and transport of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, though […]

ELMAX – An ANR project

ELMAX stands for ELectrical Control of Magnetization in fully epitaXial van der Waals heterostructures. It is a 36 months young researcher project funded by the French ANR. The recent discovery of 2D magnets has enabled the investigation of spin devices fully made of van der Waals materials. Thanks to their two-dimensional nature, 2D magnets generally […]

SpinSpike – An ANR project

SpinSpike stands for Spintronic Spiking Neurons. It is a 42-month-long ANR project (2021/2024). Spintronics has recently shown its promise for neuromorphic computing, but is lacking an essential ingredient of biological neural networks: spiking neurons. In this context, the objective of SpinSpike project is to explore novel approaches of spiking neurons using magnetic tunnel junctions. Building […]

CONTRABASS – An ANR project

CONTRABASS stands for Ferroelectric control of Rashba states, a 42 months ANR project starting in December 2020. Spintronics devices involve ferromagnetic elements with high switching energies. Contrastingly, the polarization of ferroelectrics can be easily switched by an electric field, at energies typically 1000 times lower. Combined with high spin-orbit coupling elements, ferroelectrics have also a […]
